It seems that many of the new patterns that appeal to me are steeped in tradition. I decided to flip through some of the 'state quilt' books that I own and fell in love with this block. There are several variations and sizes, but after testing a 9" center (too big) and a 4" center (too small) I settled on a 6" center.
On a garden note, a lovely trillium growing in my guys garden.
The lilacs and Rhodies are breaking out in bloom, the scent is heavenly. Hoping the rain stays away today, my Dad's horse is running in the first race at Exhibition Park in Vancouver. It will be a family affair, as we all love to show up and support Dad and his horse hobby! I'm hoping to get my picture taken in the winners circle, but so are 9 other families!
Have a great Kentucky Derby day,
